UK removes all restrictions for Covid-19 vaccinated people from Feb 11

The United Kingdom on Monday said it has removed all COVID-19 testing requirements for fully vaccinated passengers, including those arriving from India, arriving in the UK from next month.

A travel advisory issued by the Department of Transportation and Health and Social Care announced that from 4 a.m. on February 11 all testing requirements will be removed for fully immunized-eligible arrivals, now with only a Passenger Locator Form (PLF). is required.

According to the changes announced on 24 January, those who are not recognized as fully vaccinated will only need to take a pre-departure test and a PCR test on or before the second day of arrival in the UK. They will not be needed by themselves – isolated upon arrival, and will only need to be done if a positive result is obtained.

Additionally, children aged 12 to 15 in England will be able to prove their immunization status or proof of prior infection through a digital NHS COVID Pass from 3 February for outbound travel.

The travel policy changes come before the February half term, and follow the success of the booster program in the UK.

“We made the right call at the right time and – thanks to our vaccine and booster rollout – allowed us to safely remove almost all COVID-19 travel restrictions for vaccinated passengers,” said Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps.

Shapps said that “this is the final phase of our stable and safe full return to international travel, which is a huge boost for UK tourism, freeing the UK ahead of the crucial half term and spring holiday season.” ” Shapps clarified that the country will connect with major global markets and will recognize vaccine certifications from 16 more countries and territories, including India, bringing the total list to more than 180 countries and territories worldwide.
